Modern European
Established in 1985, Andrew Edmunds is considered one of the last bastions of 'old Soho'. This 18th century town house has, for more than thirty years, attracted many loyal customers. A relaxed atmosphere, seasonal menu and famous but reasonably priced wine list have ensured our enduring popularity.

We have been coming here for years ( though we are never recognized as regulars ).....food is good and the atmosphere is even better....nothing like sitting in the window on a rainy October Evening with a bottle of something nice and a quail or two !!!

Unbelievably loud and hot in there!!
Food was average, there’s better in london for much cheaper.
Sat downstairs and it was incredibly cramped. Way too many tables for a tiny space.
Spoiled my boyfriends birthday when we couldn’t hear each other to talk.
We wanted to order dessert but couldn’t take the heat and the noise any longer!! Instead we went to Ben and Jerrys round the corner. Wouldn’t recommend for an intimate meal and wouldn’t go again.

The last Bohemian place left? Great venue, great food, just a shame now need to book so far ahead but good for Andrew Edmunds!

Delivers every time - interesting menu, great wine-list with very gentle mark-ups, lovely place, even including the slightly rickety furniture. A Soho staple.

A class act. Good simple food, nice cozy, setting. Perhaps a bit crammed in upstairs, but part of the charm!

AE came well recommended by a friend and although quaint and cute enough, the food was rather bland and the atmosphere was dampened by being located next to the downstairs bar where the staff were smashing dishes around and arguing amongst themselves about something. Waiter was friendly and helpful though. Probably wouldn't go back tbh.

This is an absolute gem in the middle of Soho. I went on a Wednesday evening as a date night and couldn't have asked for much more, cosy table, lovely atmosphere where it felt vibrant but wasn't noisy so you could have a conversation without having to raise voices, and the most lovely food for very reasonable prices. The wine list was extensive and very well priced. Service was very friendly and not hurried and added to the relaxed ambience.

Being an old townhouse, space is limited and you won't find much room to spread out but that's part of the charm. For couples and small groups you won't find a nicer setting.

I'll definitely be coming back.

Service was really haphazard. Seemed like a great experience and a buzzy convivial atmosphere in the downstairs space but upstairs was cramped and the service was overstretched and slow. Food was great but the service meant the whole experience was very average.

What a FANTASTIC evening, couldn’t fault the food. We had the HUGE Pie with vegetables and the wine we had was very good good. The chap serving us was friendly, funny and attentive. We got sent to a table downstairs and pretty soon it filled up and there was a nice atmosphere. I went there for a romantic candlelight dinner and definitely was not disappointed. Please take my advice...GO!

Simply the most romantic, attentive and civilised rooms in London. The small menu is always perfectly balanced and prepared. Don’t want to over-recommend because it’s our little hideaway!

I have been to Andrew Edmunds many times but it seems like it's going downhill. The hostess was not welcoming, in fact she was rude. The food was not as good as it has been either. The ambiance is still warm and cozy...but you can't eat the ambiance!

This restaurant was an absolute gem, nestled away in a side street in Soho, the decor was simple but cosy. Service was friendly and low pressure and the food was beautifully fresh and delicious.

Everything was perfect. We all really liked our waiter, very personable Scottish guy. We didn't catch his name but he made the night. Not many places like this left, we have to love them.

One of the best value wine lists in London and inventive food. The service is always friendly. It is quirky, not luxurious but I have been there about 10 times and I love it. You have to get there early if you want their daily specials but otherwise I couldn't rate it more highly. One of my favourite London restaurants.

Excellent as usual. Menu variety was a little more limited than usual. It was a bit quieter the usual too, maybe becausr of it being a bank holiday week.

Our server was very good, attentive without being overbearing.
